Advice for Bucks customers travelling between Sunday 7 March and Friday 12 March

Chiltern Railways are advising customers in Buckinghamshire of several periods of engineering work which will impact train services in the area.

On Sunday 7th March, the railway will be closed between Princes Risborough and Bicester and rail replacement buses will operate between Princes Risborough – Haddenham & Thame Parkway – Bicester Village and Bicester North.

Additionally, from Monday 8th March until Friday 12th March, some late night services between Aylesbury and Marylebone via High Wycombe will be impacted by engineering works and trains will be replaced by buses between Aylesbury and High Wycombe.

This work forms part of Britain’s Railway Upgrade Plan and includes Network Rail track replacement work which will ensure the railway is in the best possible condition for customers when travel restrictions are eased.

Customers are reminded that Chiltern are still running services for those who need to use them, but they should follow government guidance on travel. Face coverings must be worn on public transport and at stations unless passengers are exempt.

Customers who do need to travel are advised to: 

  • Allow extra time for their journey, 
  • Travel during off-peak hours where possible,
  • Book tickets via the website or Chiltern App and use contactless payments wherever possible,
  • Check their journey before travelling as all journeys will be affected,
  • Maintain social distancing onboard trains and at stations
  • Regularly wash their hands before and after their journey.
